Helpful Legal Tips:

   Take note of the response you get from the hospital. Are they trying to deny responsibility? Make note of their comments and if they have noticed the bedsores before you did. Of course the primary thing for you to do is make sure they are providing treatment. Not just a from an aide. Demand to see a wound care specialist if necessary. Take pictures -- as bedsores can progress rapidly. They will prove useful if you have a valid bedsore lawsuit. Disregard someone who tells you you're not allowed. To find out your options call us for a free consultation. A bedsore lawyer will review your case for no cost.
